(Prof. Arnold Ehret had healed from what conventional medics diagnosed as incurable des.ease while on the journey to Africa he took looking for effective healing method. He found 🙂 And later helped many “incurables” to heal and still helps as he wrote a book helpful now as when he wrote it because what he shares is a Spiritual Healing by NATURE not “medical treatment” by accumulated comparative data as we are used to. To me this book presented Spiritual insights that helped to initiate great spiritual healing within… 🙂 )
“Everything is perfectly performed by Nature thru evolutional, progressive changes, developments and accomplishments and not by catastrophes. Nothing is more incorrect than the mistaken idea that a decades of old chronic disease can be healed thru a very long fast, or a radically extended strict fruit diet. “Nature’s mills grind slow but sure. My experience of over twenty years, covering for the most part the extremely severe cases of all kinds of diseases, has proven that a carefully selected and progressively changed Transition Diet is the best and surest way”
Disease— every disease— is, first, a special, local constipation of the circulation, tissues, pipe system. The manifestation of symptoms, or of the different symptoms. If painful and inflamed, it is from over-pressure— heat or inflammation caused from friction and congestion. Second, disease— every disease— is constitutional constipation. The entire human pipe system, especially the microscopically small capillaries are “chronically” constipated, through the wrong food of civilization. White blood corpuscles are waste— and there is no man in Western civilization who has mucus-free blood and mucus-free blood vessels. It is like the soot in a stove-pipe which has never been cleaned; in fact, worse, because the waste from protein and starchy foods is Sticky.
In Palestine we stayed several months, studying local customs, records and history of past conditions, with the result that my conception of the real meaning of the New Testament gospels was changed very much. I learned that Christ’s life and teachings were in strict accord with now well known natural laws, which brought him superior intelligence and superior health, but that when written up from current hearsay some 150 years after, was colored by oriental forms of expression and metaphors, and their incomplete knowledge of natural phenomena. What was marvelous was thought miraculous. His “forerunners,” his fasting, his diet, and manner of living, and that of his associates, all reveal the natural living which brought him superior health with no need of any special divine assistance. He verified this by stating that future generations would “do greater works than he did,” as they would get a better knowledge of natural— God’s— “unchangeable” laws and methods.
Naturopathy must more and more, cleanse its science from medical superstitions, wrongly called “scientific diagnosis.” Nature alone is the teacher of a standard science of truth. She heals thru one thing— FASTING— every disease that it is possible to heal. This alone is proof that Nature recognizes but one disease, and that in every body the largest factors are always waste, foreign matter and mucus (besides uric acid and other toxemias, and, very often, pus— if tissues are decomposed).
In order to realize how terribly clogged up the human body is, one must have seen thousands of fasters— as I have. The almost inconceivable fact is, how can such quantities of waste be stored up in the body? Have you ever stopped to realize the masses of phlegm you expel during a cold? And just as it is taking place in your head, your bronchial tubes, lungs, stomach, kidneys, bladder, etc., have the same appearance.
After you have fasted, it is advisable to decrease the quantity of your customary amount of food and eat only natural, cleansing, muscusless foods (fruits and starchless vegetables), thereby affording the body an opportunity to loosen and eliminate mucus, which is, in fact. The Healing Process
If you want to become your own physician, or, if you are a Drugless Healer and want more success, you must learn the truth and know what disease is. You cannot heal yourself, or other people, without an exact diagnosis which will give you a clear idea of true conditions. This infallible truth can be learned only from the book of Nature, that is, thru a test on your own body— or the “magic mirror,” as I have designated it.
Thru the “magic mirror” a true and unfailing diagnosis of your disease is furnished, as never before.
”The Magic Mirror”
1. Proof that your personal, individual symptom, sore, or sensation, according to what your disease is named, is nothing more than an extraordinary local accumulation of waste.
2. The coated tongue is evidence of a constitutional encumbrance thruout the entire system, which obstructs and congests the circulation by dissolved mucus, and this mucus even appears in the urine.3. The presence of unevacuated feces, retained thru sticky mucus in the pockets of the intestines, constantly poisoning, and thereby interfering with proper digestion and blood building. To look inside your body— far better and clearer than can be done by doctors with expensive X-ray apparatus— and learn the cause of your disease, or even discover some hitherto unknown physical imperfection or mental condition, try this:
Fast one or two days, or eat fruits only (such as oranges, apples, or any juicy fruit in season) for two or three days, and you will notice that your tongue will become heavily coated. When this happens to the acutely sick, the doctor’s conclusion is always— “indigestion.” The tongue is the mirror not only of the stomach, but of the entire membrane system, as well. The fact that this heavy coating returns, even if removed by a tongue scraper once or twice a day, is an accurate indication of the amount of filth, mucus and other poisons accumulated in the tissues of your entire system, now being eliminated on the inside surface of the stomach, intestines and from every cavity of your body.
You will become further convinced of this fact— of this diagnosis of your disease— by another surprise in store for you; if you will empty your intestines both before and after the test, with “Innerclean Laxative”…* (many including Jesus and associates and countless generations of yogis and modern people use most natural and effective “laxative”: water (with little lemon juice) administered by enema and guided by certain positioning of the body including myself being absolutely assured by many years of experience in its effectiveness – the only law of nature to observe is necessity)
The Experimental Diagnosis
Just as I have already stated in the beginning of this lesson, you must fast for two or three days. In the case of a fatty type, liquids should be used during the fast. The surface of the tongue will clearly indicate the appearance on the inside of the body, and the patient’s breath will prove the amount and grade of decomposition. It is even possible to tell the kind of food they preferred most! Should pain be felt at any one place during the beginning of the fast, you may be sure that this is a weak point and the symptom is not sufficiently developed for medical doctors to reveal it thru their examination. Waste will show up in the urine with clouds of mucus, and mucus will be expelled from the nose, throat and lungs as well as in the feces. The weaker and more miserable the patient may feel during the fast, the greater is his encumbrance, and the weaker his vitality. This experimental diagnosis tells you exactly what the trouble is, and how to correct it by starting with a moderate transition diet— or a more radical one— and whether to continue or discontinue the fast. This experiment is the foundation, the basis of the development of the science of Nature cure, physics, chemistry, etc. It is the question put to Nature, and she replies with the same infallible answer, always and everywhere. If the patient becomes nervous, or symptoms of heart trouble occur, you may be sure that he has drugs stored up in his body. A consumptive patient starts with such terrible elimination, after a short fast, that it must be plain to all how ignorant and how impossible it is to try and cure him with “good nourishing foods,” such as eggs and milk. The above explaination is the experimental diagnosis, and the only scientific one. You cannot secure a better view inside than by this simple method. No expensive apparatus can show more accurately the exact conditions as they exist inside the body. All other examinations, including iris-diagnosis, diagnosis of the spine, etc., are never exact and, therefore, not dependable.Nature’s mirrors, her revelations, her demonstrations— of and by phenomena— are “magic” only so long as you lack the correct interpretation of them. Nature shows and plainly reveals to you everything, far more exact, perfect and better than all “science of diagnosis” put together.
The Formula of Life
The Secret of Vitality Lesson V.
V’ = P’ – O’ (V equals P’ minus O’) is the formula of Life— and yet at the same time you may call it the formula of death.
“V” stands for VITALITY.
“P,”or call it “X,” the unknown quantity in this question, is the POWER that drives the human machinery, which keeps you alive, which gives you strength and efficiency, endurance for as yet an unknown length of time without food!
“O” means OBSTRUCTION, encumbrance, foreign matters, toxemias, mucus; in short, all internal impurities which obstruct the circulation, the function of internal organs especially, and the human engine in its entire functioning system.
You can therefore see thru this equation that as soon as “O” becomes greater than “P” the human machine must come to a standstill. The engineer can figure exactly “E ==^ P — F,” meaning that the amount of energy or efficiency “E” he secures from an engine is not equal to the power “P” without first deducting “F,” the friction. The ingenious idea of construction of the ideal engine Is to make it work with the smallest amount of friction. Should we transfer this fundamental and principal idea on the human engine, we see that it involves the terrible ignorance of medical physiology and that Naturopathy found a true way of healing by removing— eliminating obstructions— that is, foreign matters of encumbrance, mucus and its toxemias. But just what vitality really is and how tremendous it can become, what a higher, superior, absolute health is, has not up to the present date been shown or proven. I will teach in the following lessons a principally different New Physiology, based on the correction of medical errors of blood-circulation, blood-composition, blood- building and metabolism. For this purpose it is necessary that you first learn what vitality— what animal life really is. It is generally admitted, that the secret of vitality, the secret of animal life is unknown to science. It will surprise you when shown the truth thru a simple, natural enlightenment, and you must admit at once that it is THE TRUTH. Always remember this fact: “Whatever cannot be seen, conceived at once, thru simple reasoning is humbug, and not science!”
The human engine must first be seen before all other physiological considerations as an air-gas engine builded, and constructed in its entirety, with the exception of the bones, from a rubber-like, very elastic, spongy material, called flesh and tissues.
The next fact is that its function is that of a pump system by air-pressure, and with an inside circulation of liquids, such as the blood and other saps, and that THE Lungs Are the Pump and the Heart Is the Valve —and not the opposite— as erroneously taught by medical physiology for the past 400 years! A further fact— one that has been almost entirely over- looked—is the automatic, atmospheric outside counter- pressure, which is over 14 pounds to the square inch. Immediately upon, and after each outbreath a vacuum is created in the lung cavity. In other words, the human body animal organism in its entirety, functions automatically by inhaling air-pressure and expelling chemically changed air and outside atmospheric counter-pressure on the vacu- ums of the body. That is vitality, animal life in the first instance and importance. That is ^^F’ (power) which keeps you alive— without air you cannot live five minutes! But the unseen fact, let us say the secret, is that it works simply and automatically thru atmospheric counter-pressure, which is only possible because the “engine” consists of elastic, spongy material with a vital strain power— with an ability of vibration, expansion and contraction. Those two facts were the unknown secrets concerning the automatic function of “P” as the phenomena of vitality, and the Chemist Hensel has proven thru chemical physiological formulas that this special vital elasticity of the tissues is due to a lime sugar combination
The Latin word “spira” means first, air and then spirit: “The breath of God” is in fact first, good fresh air! It has been said that breathing is life, and it is true that you develop vitality, health, thru physical and breathing exer- cises. It is also true that you can remove “O” (obstruction) by higher air-pressure and counter-pressure in this way. It is true that you remove and eliminate obstructions of foreign matter by local and constitutional vibrations, consisting of all kinds of physical treatments. It is true that you eliminate disease matters and obstructions, and therefore relieve every kind of disease thru an artificial speeding of the circulation, giving more “air-gas” and vibrating the tissues. You increase “P” (power) artificially for a certain time, but you decrease the vital ability of the function of counter-pressure, weakening the rubberlike elasticity of the tissues. In other words, you increase “P” but not “V”— to the contrary— this is done, and can be done only at the expense of “V”. You know from experience what happens to a rubber band continually kept stretched or over-expanded. It loses its elasticity.
You relieve diseases, but you slowly lower vitality, particularly of the especially elastic and spongy important organs of lung, liver, kidney, etc. You relieve but do not heal diseases perfectly; you lower vitality, just so long as you loosen, remove and eliminate obstructions, exclusively thru political means (agents) and just so long as you do not stop the supply, the taking in of waste, of obstruction, —by wrong mucus-forming, that is— disease-building unnatural foods, you lower vitality. Would anyone attempt to clean an engine thru a continually higher speed and shaking. No! You would first flush with a dissolving liquid and then change your fuel supply, should it be a steam engine, and obstructions thru waste being caused through the coal burning only partly. This involves the problem of dietetics, which culminates in the solution of these questions over its history: Which ARE THE BEST FOODS? Meaning, which foods give most energy, endurance, health and increased vitality, or which foods are the basic cause of diseased conditions and growing old? What is the essence of life, of vitality, breathing exercise, activity— a perfect mind or right food? My formula, the equation shown in the heading, gives the enlightening answer and solves the problem in its entire mystery. Decrease “O” first by decreasing quantities of food of all kinds, or even eliminate food entirely (fasting), if conditions tell you; second, stop, or at least decrease by all means, obstruction-causing mucus-forming foods, and increase dissolving, eliminating, obstruction- removing foods and you then increase “P,” meaning a more unobstructed function of “P” of air-pressure, of the infinite, inexhaustible power source. In other words, the problem of vitality and animal life functioning at all, consists in unobstructed, perfect circulation by air-pressure, and in a vital elasticity of the tissues thru proper food as the necessary counter-pressure for the function of life. “P” is infinite, unlimited, and practically the same every- where and on everybody continually the same, but its activity slows down in the tempo (speed) as you accumulate obstructions, as you overeat and eat wrongly, lowering the automatic counter-pressure of the tissues. You may now see that vitality does not depend immediately, directly and primarily from food or from a right diet. If you eat too much of the best foods, especially in a body full of wastes and poisons, it is impossible for them to enter into your blood stream in a clean state and become “efficiency-giving” vital substances. They are mixed with and poisoned by mucus and auto-toxemias and actually lower vitality— they increase “O” instead of “P.” You now see and you may realize very deeply that it is worth- less to figure food values with the intention of increasing “P” or “V” as long as the body is full of “O.” This problem is solved by my system, consisting of periodical minor fastings, alternating with cleansing, not nourishing, mucus-less and mucus-poor menus. Not as wrongly done with the idea that “V” is directly increased in a sick person thru feeding clean food. Remove “O” thru intelligent, personally prescribed menus. “P” increases automatically after a fast thru its unobstructed function. You can now realize how wrong and insufficient it is for people to think that all there is to the “Mucus-less Diet” is knowing the right foods!
Here, then, is the cause why so many “fasting,” “fruit- diet,” etc., “cures” fail. The inexperienced layman ALWAYS COMES TO THE DEATH POINT. In Other WOrds, he removes “O” too rapidly, too much at once and feels “fine” for awhile, the dissolving process goes deeper— “O” increases— he feels terribly weak, falls back on wrong diet, and thru this wrong diet stops the elimination of more obstructions, feels well again, blames the good food for his weakness and sees the wrong food as the food of vital efficiency. He loses his faith and tells you in all sincerity, “I have tried it, but it is wrong.” He blames the system, entirely ignorant regarding it, when he alone is to blame. Here is the stumbling block even of other diet experts and Naturopaths experimenting in dietetics. Lesson 7 will divulge this secret. Some have had more experiences, but very few think as I do that Vitality, Energy and Strength is not derived from food at all! They believe it is acquired thru sleep, etc. What I have learned and what I know thru years of experimenting, fasting and diet, and what I have actually demonstrated can be found in my book, “Rational Fasting,” but briefly stated, it is this: FirST- Vitality does not depend primarily and directly upon food, but rather from the facts of how far and how much the function of the human engine is obstructed— “clogged up” by the obstructions of mucus and toxemias.
Second— Removing “O” by artificially increasing “P” thru artificial stimulants, shaking and vibrating tissues thru physical treatments is always done at the expense of “V,” Vitality. Third— Vital energy, physical and mental efficiency, endurance, superior health by “P,” air and water alone, is tremendous, beyond imagination, as soon as “P” works and can work without “O”— without obstruction and friction in a perfectly clean body. Fourth— The limit of going without food and before solid food becomes necessary under such ideal conditions, is yet unknown. Fifth— The composition of “P,” besides air, oxygen and a certain quantity of water-steam, increases— w/ only in a clean body— thru the following other agents from the infinite: Electricity; Ozone; Light (especially sunlight); Odor (good smells of fruit and flowers). Further, it is not impossible that under such clean, natural conditions, nitrogen of the air may be assimilated. In the following lesson I teach you a new but true physiology of the body, which is necessary to know in order to understand why and how the MucusLESS Diet Healing System functions in its complete perfection, and for this purpose it was first necessary to lift the veil from the secret, FROM THE MYSTERY OF VITALITY.
